Happy Birthday, Steve.
In eternity we will celebrate all our birthdays together but in the meantime I rejoice in the life that we live together even when it means being apart. It is such an incredible privilege to be able to serve together at this point in our lives.

I know that you are committed to your students and always give them your very best and I know what an impact the you have on these fine young people. 

Looking forward to seeing you soon in Vancouver.  I love you.
